  • The Army-Navy Screen Magazine 03 1943: The entire newsreel

The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons.   I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1, Part 1, troops at Camp Johnston, Fla., abandon equipment while swimming, jump from towers, and swim under burning oil. Part 2 contrasts prewar N.Y.C. traffic and bright lights with wartime blackout conditions. Cars are stored because of the gas shortage; consumers use ration books for food. Part 3, Russian troops use sleds, eat at field kitchens, and snipe at Germans. Reel 2, Part 1 describes V-mail procedures: cutting, microfilming, transport, photographic enlargement, and processing. Part 2, Gen. Vandegrift describes the Guadalcanal campaign. Shows the landing, brief combat scenes, and Japanese prisoners."
